Are you sure the the timemaster doesn't go straight up? Their video on youtube appears to show the handle going up...

The timemaster goes up but not the "TURFMASTER"(has a identical fixed handle like the pro-line models)

My local Exmark/Toro dealer said they'd have them in a week.

I could understand with an enclosed trailer though, depending on the size. But if you need to fold the handle then I think its time for a bigger trailer, but Im sure you know that, or are getting to that point when a bigger trailer is on the horizon.
The fold up handle is a huge plus for the homeowner version. I have a 6x12 enclosed and space is at a Premium. The other issue is the added weight and lack of personal pace. Both my Toro TimeMaster 30 and Ybravo 25 are secondary use mowers.

Thanks for input on a ramp shelf for a 21". Going to do that for my yBravo25.

What type of drive system does the commercial version have?

How does it engage, and speeds....?

I beleive its belt driven, much like the 21" mowers, but I know it has a much larger transmission, I was able to look under one at the trade show. The speeds are the same as a self propelled, about 4km/hr or something along those lines, its actually very nimble for its size and will probably behave like a heavy duty 21" mower that may weight 120lb+, this model is 170 or so, its seems very nice, I just hope it cuts well, which I'm sure is what most people are concerned about.
